Summer Myomick and Clyde Ongtowasruk III Memorial

Donation protected

On Tuesday, January 17th, 24-year-old Summer Myomick and her baby boy, Clyde Ongtowasruk III, tragically passed away after injuries sustained in what was the first fatal polar bear attack in Alaska in over 30 years. Their immediate family is currently and had been displaced after recent electrical issues in their home that have yet to be resolved. In the face of unfathomable tragedy and heartbreak, we kindly ask for support of the family and community of Wales to help ease any associated financial burdens in this trying time (including travel expenses for Summer and Clyde "Bups" Ongtowasruk Jr.'s family, which is mostly by small passenger airplane only in villages), and to aid in getting "Bups" and Avatia back into their home.

A memorial service is set to be held in Wales, followed by a funeral service in St. Michael.

Photos included in this post were shared by the family members for the purpose of this memorial, and we ask that you respect their privacy during this period of immense grief.
